Jaeger-LeCoultre “The Dark Knight Rises” Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931

Andrea Divirgilio / July 24, 2012

An iconic watch and a timeless symbol of Art Deco, the ‘Reverso’ is the Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre’s invention that has been unique in the world since 1931. This exotic watch sporting a dial that could protect itself from shocks, all the while offering a personalized engraved background is widely known for being first featured in Joel Schumacher directed ‘Batman Forever’ starring Val Kilmer in the title role. The playboy-cum-philanthropist and night-owl-vigilante wore the Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Grande Taille sporting a Batman logo engraved and lacquered on its solid case-back, and used it more as a communicating tool with its dial replaced by the faces of the people Batman was communicating with. Even Batman’s new incarnation in the form of Bruce Wayne also wore Reverso in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. And, continuing its seventeen-year old association with the Batman franchise, Jaeger-LeCoultre is seen featured in the latest blockbuster ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, in which the character of Bruce Wayne wears the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grande Date. Now, Jaeger-LeCoultre also pays its tribute to the epic conclusion to the Dark Knight legend with a custom Reverso watch, a very special edition Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931 steel timepiece engraved and lacquered with the legendary Bat-Shield.

Back in 1995, a limited edition Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Grande Taille was created. And, now the original look of the limited edition Grande Taille has however been reproduced in the form of the Reverso Grande Date wore by legendary Batman/Bruce Wayne in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.

Paying tribute to the epic conclusion to the Dark Knight legend, the custom special edition Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931 steel timepiece will be available for view in Jaeger-LeCoultre’s own London, Geneva, Los Angeles and Hong Kong boutiques.
